REMAINING 2014 PIMBA SCHEDULE
PIMBA's fall 2014 schedule includes five regular-season shows leading up to Championships at Penn Trafford High School. All bands throughout the tri-state area are invited to participate in either Festival Class or Competition Class.

Bands of all sizes and styles are welcome to perform and receive any combination of music and/or visual input, including audio commentary in real time from up to 7 judges, post-show dialogue with the judges, and ratings as feedback to help students and bands improve. Ratings and rankings are optional.

PIMBA is thrilled that a record eight bands will participate as Guest Bands this season, including Freeport at the Kiski show; Plum at the Gateway show, Ritchie County, WV, and Belle Vernon at the Norwin Show, Greater Latrobe and Cochranton at the Moon show, and Apollo-Ridge and West Greene at the Deer Lakes show!
